? >> have not heard obama say it is strong. we've lost jobs, manufacturing alone up two-thirds of the jobs created are jobs that are low-wage jobs, about 60% are for older people, for a president who doesn't like wal-mart very much sounds like president obama is creating a lot of jobs for wal-mart readers. wages went down, hours worked went down. i don't know what talking points you're working from. gerri: i think there is widespread frustration with how the economy is growing. why aren't we getting a more robust expansion especially when it comes to jobs? i heard if we continue to add jobs month by month like we did this month it would take us nine to 10 years to get back to full employment. >> i would not believe all of those numbers. what you're seeing right now is job growth three times what it was at this point in t 2001 recovery. what you're seeing right now is 32 straight months of job growth. growth model a financial crisis. this is not an ordinary recession. this is the worst crisis and we are doing extremely well. gerri: i feel confident in the numbers i presented. i think karen
for president obama. maybe you heard yesterday that the labor department might delay those all important job numbers this friday before the election. this is from u.p.i. this morning. the labor department says it intends to release the awaited october jobs report on schedule friday despite hurricane sandy but can't be sure yet. we will give you more campaign news as we go along. first, back to phone calls. claudia in sun prairie, wisconsin, a democrat, talking about trust in government during natural disasters. go ahead, claudia. caller: good morning. i do trust in government. what i have a problem with is the obstructionism in congress by the republican party. we should have an infrastructure though in this country. look around. everything is crumbling. europe, avel to asia, come back here and is gee, what is going on? for the past four years, inauguration day, i don't know if it was 12 or 18 prominent republicans, cantor, ryan, et cetera, meeting in a fancy steakhouse to pledge that they will not allow this president to have a second term. that is on inauguration night. these people don't
became the most partisan. then he was going to focus on jobs instead he focused on obama care which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half but doubled it. he said the unemployment rate would be at 5.2% and today we learned it's at 7.9. unemployment is higher today than when he took office. he promised he would propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather he raided $716 from medicare for his obama care plan. he said heed lower healthcare premiums for the average family by $2000 a year which now they're higher. and gasoline the american family pays $2,000 more a year than when the president was lectsed. he said he would work across the aisle on important issues. he has not met on the economy or budget or jobs with either the republican leader of the house or senate since july. so instead of bridging the divide he's made it wider. how has he fallen so sort of what he promised. in part because he never led before or worked across the aisle or understood how jobs are created in the real economy. so today he makes new promise
. as president obama points out, mitt romney's plan for the auto workers of ohio would have actually sent jobs to china. >> he's hoping you remember that it's likely to create jobs in china because is shifts them overseas instead of here in the united states of america. if mitt romney had been president when the auto industry was on the verge of collapse, we might not have an automobile industry today. we'd be buying cars from china instead of selling to them. >> mitt romney's path to the presidency is impossible without ohio's 18 electoral votes. right now winning ohio is not looking good for romney. six ohio polls were released this week. five of them have president obama leading. one is tied. president obama's average lead in ohio is 2.3 points. that's a big lead, seriously. now families in northern ohio have not forgotten what the rescue of the automobile industry did for their state. one in eight ohio jobs are about the automobile industry. this is why mitt romney is doing everything he possibly can to down play the impact of the auto rescue. his political director says the obama campaign
. [video clip] >> let me tell you how i will create 12 million jobs when president obama could not. first, my energy independence policy means more than 3 million new jobs. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates 7 million more. expanding trade, cracking down on china, and improving job training the texas to over 12 million new jobs. -- takes us to 12 million new jobs. host: barack obama for reelection, pointing out the economy is slowly recovering from the 2008 meltdown. the editorial this morning from "the new york times. if there is an election dispute, what happens next? caller: this only proves the factory on of the republicans stole the election. one lady was right, the electoral college is crap. if mitt romney gets an, are we going to war right now? we need to take care of our people and our country here. all we are doing is finding reasons to get involved into other countries when obama and everyone else wants to focus on what is going on in in america today. mitt romney says we will crack down on china. how about the china alone. let'
probably would have voted for obama. i think he did a stellar job. with the correct name. i think you for your programming. host: are there issues you wish the candidates would address more but you think they are not because oregon is not considered a battleground state? caller: jobs of course. we are one of the poorest states. i volunteer at a food bank. i cannot believe how fast we have grown up. because of lack of employment. and it is sad, it is very, very sad. >> thank you for the call. we want to show you a clip of the governor romney yesterday in virginia. one of those swing states. yesterday he campaigned with majority leader eric cantor, a congressman from virginia. we will show you a bit of that now. [video clip] >> leader cantor, when was the last time you met with the president on the economy or the budget? >> he says almost one year. let me tell you, for me to get the things done i just described, i am going to have to reach across the aisle and meet with good democrats that love america just like you love america. and there are good democrats like that. i will meet with
, dividing. he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. and instead, he focused on obama care, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learn that it's actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment today is higher than on the day barack obama took office. he promised that he would propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather, he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his obama care. he said he was going to lower health insurance premiums for the average family by $2,500 a year by now. and actually, they are now $3,000 higher for an average family. and gasoline, the american family now pays $2,000 a year more for gasoline than when he was elected. of course, he also said he was going to work across the aisle on the most important issues. listen to this, he has not met on the economy o
presidency. he said he'd focus on creating jobs, but instead he focused on creating obama care, which killed jobs. he said he would cut the deficit in half, instead it's double what it was. he said he'd get unemployment by now down to 5.2%, and we learned today it ticked up to 7.9%. that's 9 million jobs short. those are real americans. can't find work, 23 million in all can't find work or can't find work that's up to their needs. can only five part-time job. this is a critical time. the president was a president who took office with the economy as the number one challenge, and you know, he's got a higher unemployment today than when he took office. think of that. >> the president is also scheduled to speak this hour in ohio. we'll bring that to you live also. the story everyone here in new york is talking about today. will the new york city marathon help the city heal from sandy or make a bad situation worse? we'll spin on that and dive deep into our state of the day where i will make a change on my map as "the cycle" rolls on for a busy friday, november 2nd. begin. tomato, obviously. haha.
-called green energy jobs. >> president obama is picking winners and losers based on connections, based on fads like solyndra. >> we all like wind and solar but you can't drive a car with a windmill on it. >> the past prosperity is not through solar shingles and high speed train. and by the way, i like coal. >> jon: i like it a lot! i give it to my grandkids every christmas! (laughter) so they're picking winners and losers. so here is what it is, the republicans appear to have a principlesed stance that government shouldn't pick winners and losers when the government is run by democrats. but when it's run by them, pick away! (laughter) we'll be right back. -- cheers plewes. welcome back. you know, a lot of congressional races going on also around the country, in fact one senate candidate from indiana just got some really good news. >> i'm supporting richard mourdock for senate. >> i can't believe they are picking winners and losers like that mourdock just snalinged this plumb endorsement last week. let's check in and see what this brash young republican is all about. >> i believe that life begi
and then, folks, write it down. here are a couple of ways to look at the obama job record for the republicans, democrats, and economists. let's look at the full screen we have. what you find is you've created or he's created under his presidency 580,000 jobs created beginning in february '09 through october 2012. now democrats might take out the first three months something republicans are unlikely to do when there was a huge number of jobs lost before any of us took effect. plus 2.1 million. economistses in the last two numbers that minus 3.2 million shows what happened from the beginning of the obama presidency through the trough, minus 3.2 million and then from there plus 4.3 million jobs. so take it any way you like. you can create jobs, create enough jobs, not the enough jobs. that's for you guys to figure out. there's the baseline, though. a modest uptick in the economy before sandy but thursday when jobless claims we're likely to see the first effects of sandy show up in the data. carl? >> thank you so much, steve. what could this mean as we head into the election?
,000 more lost jobs. we can't afford four more years of an obama economy that's not working, where you have people losing income on average of $4,500. he said he was going to decrease our health care premiums by 2,500. now they have gone up by 3,000. that's a difference of $5,500. >> okay. >> that's costing individuals -- >> let's just stick to the topic at hand there. i just want to -- >> well, take-home pay i think is the top number one topic for everybody in having a job. >> i just want to be clear though that the leaders at the crs said that they did not want to actually withdraw that report and it was apparently under pressure from the gop. >> well, i think if they with drew it it speaks for itself. >> you're not fully familiar with the situation so maybe we'll have you back on and we can talk about it a little more. barbara come stack, appreciate that. thank you. >> it's not just the next president that's on the ballot this tuesday. still ahead, i'll detail the controversial initiatives voters will weigh in on including health care and abortion and same-sex marriage. hello!!!!

appearance there sunday, polls now show president obama's edge in pennsylvania is narrowing. will the jobs report give either any massive boost? that's unclear. experts say all but a few voters have likely made up their minds, particularly, about the economy. katie marzullo, abc7 news. >>> developing news for one of the areas hardest hit by the superstorm. con ed officials, say they could have power restored to all of manhattan by today. more than 4.1 million are without power across a dozen states. the election is forcing new jersey to get creative in the wake of sandy. officials plan to use military trucks to service polling places on election day in communities that don't have power. recovery marked by progress and frustration. in new york, people are hoping the commute will be better than yesterday new carpool rule required drivers to have at least three people in their car. lines were enormous. the death toll has climbed to 90, including two staten island toddlers, swept away by flood waters. >>> gas one of the most valuable commodities in new york and new jersey people are waiting up

in this state. stay where you are. i'm coming back to you as well. >>> president obama is trying to save his job but has he done enough to save yours? that's the big question with the jobs report that just came out. we'll be right back with a special live edition of "your money" from ohio. there are a lot of warning lights and sounds vying for your attention. so we invented a warning you can feel. introducing the all-new cadillac xts. available with a patented safety alert seat. when there's danger you might not see, you're warned by a pulse in the seat. it's technology you won't find in a mercedes e-class. the all-new cadillac xts has arrived, and it's bringing the future forward. ♪ ♪ >>> there is no doubt that friday's jobs report is positive. that doesn't mean that it's the best thing you've ever seen. it doesn't mean that 171,000 jobs that were added in october was the right number. it is not negative. they need to convince voters that they can create jobs. it's not enough. so which one is going to do better? >> companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight m
're going to pay for their tax cut. you don't get an answer. you want a jobs plan from obama, you don't get an answer. >> on that point of what the campaigns themselves are serving up, and of course we tend to cover what they are talking about, obama campaign ad has gotten a whole lot of attention the last couple of days. lina dunham, creator and star of hor's "girls," saying this about why she is swooning for the president. >> the first time shouldn't be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. a guy what cares whether you get health insurance and specifically whether you get birth control. >> i said this on dailydownload, i wrote a piece on this. this is something that the campaign is doing to reach out to younger female voters. conservatives are going crazy about this kind of thing. but it is getting younger women to talk about women's issues. >> i didn't have any problem with that ad. had a couple of down to entendres, but so what? >> it's funny, interesting, at least that segment. it's outrageous to the conservatives. it's one of those things that people can latch on to a
. look at our national economy, with barack obama's failed policy, 50% of graduates do not have a job. what we have to do is create those jobs. 10 years ago by the proposed paying students to stay in north dakota. pay them $5,000 to stay in north dakota. that is not why we have 680,000 people today. that is not why we have our kids coming back. it is because we create a stable tax environment, regulatory environment, and we have encouraged businesses to grow and to invest in small business. that is what we have done that has caused our growth and success. it is the same thing we need to do is trust the individuals, create stability in the federal government. >> i will not apologize for wanting to help students from north dakota who want to stay in north dakota, pay back some of their college debt. --s is the type of doesn't this was the $5,000 debt. -- deal. 1/3 of all the benefits that profits bank of north dakota, and i will take responsibility, came on the backs of students. that is wrong. shouldt loan programs be not for profit. >> it was taken away from north to canada -- from no
to the lowest point since president obama's first month in office. today, job numbers closed the chapter of president obama's first term, and his economic agenda. it's worked. but if you need to be reminded of where this country was when he took office, just listen to house democratic leader nancy pelosi from my radio show today. >> four years ago in september, when president bush was president, and on september 18th when i had the chairman of the fed and the secretary of the treasury and others in my office, democrats and republicans, house and senate leadership, the chairman of the fed said if we do not act immediately, we will not have an economy by monday. are we better off today than we were four years ago? our country absolutely is. can it be better for many of america's families? absolutely and it would have been if the republicans had not obstructed. >> the president and the democrats were able to get this country going, i guess you could say with one arm tied behind their backs. mitt romney is ready to turn over the reins to the guys who caused the mess? really? voters have four

[speaking in native tongue] there in china, mexico, canada, countries that have made the sales more attractive for entrepreneurs and business and investment. even as president obama's policies have made it less attrtive for them here. thing. gerri: and we have one more jobs report to come. what do you expect? is it going to help romney or the president? >> i don't think it's going to make much difference at all. if you look at the picture that the economy has been traveling through for the past three years now, basically we're in a situaaion where we have continued slow growth. we have growth at about 2 percent per year since the turnaround in june of 2009. i normal recovery should have doubled that, and unless we get to double that kind of growth are not going to have significant job growth. one of the things that -- go ahead. i'm sorry. gerri: i was going to make the point that obama makes that it was bush's fault and we have some sound on that. here's the president. >> what he did
obama's policies has produced. americans are ready for change, for growth, for jobs, for more take home pay, and we're going to bring it to them. >> brown: after two days of intense campaigning, president obama was off the trail today. he did not directly address the new data in a radio interview, but pushed back on romney's criticism. >> the fact of the matter is that governor romney's economic policies are reverting back to the same policies that i inherited, that led us to the slowest job growth in 50 years, record deficits, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. wt governor romney's offering is a return to picies that have failed us in the past. he's now talking about them as "big changes." they're a repeat... a relapse of things that haven't worked for american families for over a decade now. >> brown: with both sides promising to revitalize the economy, there's one more important report yet to come: the jobs numbers for october will be released next friday, just four days before voters head to the polls. earlier today, i talked about the new government economic
voted for mr. obama in 2008 and says the president has done a good job over the last four years. but his business is preparing for the next four years. and he's decided on romney this time around. >> i'm leaning more towards romney in the sense that he is a businessman. he understands what we're going through. he understands the situation that many businessmen have been in, where government can step in and effect what are you trying to do. and that is create jobs. and we believe that he has a strong belief in energy independence in this country. >> reporter: he is betting on the future of northeast ohio's gas reserves. but for others it's already hit home. mel owns a farm in the valley not far from youngstown. he's leased a patch of land once meant for soybeans to console energy which has already begin drilling and he is also bit-- betting that romney approach will serve him best. >> the president has more regulations, he's put more regulations on farmingnd everything. i think i have seen a number, 200 and some regulations that he did by executive order. and plans on doing some more afte
themselves. fortunately for president obama, that's his job this week. he signed up for it, and now it needs doing. there's no walking away from it, nothing that takes precedence over putting his head and heart into ensuring the absolute best to the absolute best of his ability that people in the northeast part of the country recover and begin to reconstruct from this natural emergency. and every second this pred applies himself, the most he must hope that the electoral momentum will shift in his direction because these several days will test if the president shares the hope on which he's built his public life. here is the latest on sandy's devastating impact. this storm has been blamed for at least 38 deaths so far. there's new video this afternoon showing the massive destruction along the new jersey shore. governor chris christie of new jersey called the impact on his state unthinkable and said it would take months to recover. the storm swept houses from their foundations and left parts of the coast under water as you can see. new york city is also dealing with devastating floods. the subw
obama of helping chrysler and gm move jobs to china. chrysler says it is a big lie. gm says it is a big lie. the "detroit free press" says it is a big lie. does mitt romney even care about the truth at all? obviously not. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." but here she is lisa ferguson out in los angeles. >> good morning everyone. mitt romney is headed to florida today to host events with senator marco rubio and jeb bush. he starts off the date in tampa and then heads to coral gables and jacksonville. paul ryan will be campaigning in wisconsin. some are calling the pair's reemergence on the campaign trial after supposedly taking time out out of respect for the hurricane victims. romney's official reason for the event yesterday was to collect donations for storm victims, but it sure looked a lot like a campaign, a big american flag on the wall campaign music, crowds and the press were invited. voters had to wait to drop off their donations until romney arrived to collect them himself. john mccain even went as far as to blas
the economy has been adding about an average of zero hundred and 73 jobs per month. president obama facing voters with the highest and of an array of any incumbent since fdr. the rate picked up because more people without jobs got back into the workforce and started looking for work. now they are counted as unemployed again. with a solid gains and the number of american hired dow futures are climbing out of 26 points at the opening bell. >> the ipad mini those on set a atm at the app stores. all pre orders have been sold out for some time. if you go to order today it will still take about two- three weeks to ship. if you want on today you have to go to an ipad store can stand in line. will tran is live in palo alto. >> you will have to stand in line with is not as crazy as the iphone release. people and line will show that to you in a few moments. you can see the mini ipad is so close. it is like a steak and people are hungry and salivating and will not be able to get their hands on it for a couple of hours. they can say they earn it because the line you can see we have about 40-25 and lin
. the new unemployment number -- how will it play in the polling place? the jeep jobs in china flap. >> obama sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> it is an outrageous lie. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> we thought this was going to be a pre-election broadcast and all we had to do was handicap the election. along came hurricane sandy. in politics, a wise man told me once that you can never see around the corner. i don't want to minimize the tragic human dimensions of this storm and its aftermath, but this is a political program and the election is next tuesday, so here goes. new jersey gov. chris christie prior to the hurricane. >> let's give you the plane ticket back to chicago you have current. >> after sandy, he was thanking him. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for the people of our state. >> he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back stronger than before. >> in the past several days, voters have seen the president on tv,
between the romney and obama campaign about jobs related to the auto industry, particularly jeep and gm. how do you see the auto bailout and how it's going to play in this election? >> well, there's no question that the manufacturing numbers have been a modest positive in few years. not up by a huge amount. we're not anywhere near getting back all the industrial jobs that we lost in the recession. but it's between then and a mild positive. ohio has been a beneficiary of that. not just in the auto industry, but in a variety of manufacturing areas. but ohio is benefiting other areas in terms of health. the health sector is doing fairly well. the health sector is benefiting from the oil and gas deals. so modest positives on the economic and jobs front for the state of ohio. the issue, i think, for obama is that people are thinking about a lot more than just the economy and the automotive side specifically and, of course, the governor of ohio, john kasich, is tying to contribute anything that is positive to his administration as opposed to that of barack obama. >> that we have seen. jim, th
christie, and this man said that obama was doing an outstanding job. >> elections are right around the corner next week, and campaigns have resumed. it is a difficult question to ask, but who has actually profited from the situation? >> for mitt romney, it is a difficult situation because national disaster times are times when politics are supposed to be put aside, so campaigning too early might hurt him, but it is the only thing he can do because he does not have any form of public office. that is why the campaign is putting him back up to speed on wednesday. he already had a campaign stop. for president obama, it is exactly the contrary because every day he seems to be commander-in-chief is better for him where he can do something as a president. his campaign management is taking its time to put him back on the trail, but pundits agree that the whole situation probably helped president obama more than it helped mitt romney. to what extent is quite unclear still. >> thanks for joining us. we will have a report about the election campaign in a little bit. >> airports in new york an
the president's picking up political points. >> the message that christie is sending voters is that obama is doing a good job. he's not a scary, socialist person, that he's somebody who can be trusted. >> reporter: in florida, governor romney criticized the administration's record helping small business. >> sometimes, regulators seem to look at businesses like they're the enemy. >> reporter: he never mentioned the president by name, but governor jeb bush did, claiming mr. obama's making excuses for his failures. >> it's almost as though the dog ate my homework is the reason why we're going through tough times. >> reporter: early voting reopened in maryland with some long lines. >> three hours. >> yeah, yeah, but it's worth it. >> reporter: in areas where flooding destroyed some polling places, they're considering putting up tents to make sure residents can vote tuesday. more polls, quinnipiac gives the president a five-point edge in ohio, but they say things are so close, it's such a small lead in virginia and florida, they're calling it a tie. lynn? >> all right, tracie potts for us in w

million jobs short of what he said he would accomplish. >> sean: the simple truth is the obama administration has done nothing to move this country forward, only backwards. and haar to respond to the president's chances on tuesday, his handling of the storm and much more, former alaska governor and fox news contributor sarah palin. governor, this is simple for me. one in six americans in poverty. $6 trillion debt. 17 million, 17 million more americans on food stamps, bringing the total to 49 million. for every one job obama created 75 more people got on food stamps during his presidency and there is 25 million unemployed americans. does that person deserve reelection? >> and don't forget our deflated currency and the oncoming inflation that will be a result of that. sean, just a few examples that you gave in the previous minutes of your commentary certainly show that all of that hopey changey stuff of this obama administration straiks is in a big messy loud bloody train wreck and four more days, it can't come soon enough. >> sean: i agree with you. why do i believe -- i wonder

added revisions of 84k. that gives us a number to use for the job creation under president obama. i'm sure this will be part of the discussion. we added up the numbers. here they are under president obama. beginning in february '09, this is how republicans would look at it. 580,000. that's the right number, folks. another number out there is the wrong number. i talked to the senior in the division of labor statistics. some democrats say you can't blame obama for the first three months but it was a huge decline before any of his policies took over. $2.1 million would be the number. if you take that out. congress says forget about democrat or republican, what about the cycle from the beginning of president obama's term through the trough in jobs that was minus 3.2 million, from the trough we're now plus 4.3 million. the time period over obama's presidency, ss aboit is about a. it is up a tick. it began at 7.8%, but all the way up to 10%, then a slow halting ride down. don't think these numbers will change anybody's point of view when it comes to the election but those are the numbers

change. back to the october jobs status these reports have become the focal point since president obama took office and an important monthly mile marker for judging the state of obama's presidency beyond anything else. there have never been a focus on jobs numbers in a presidency like this one but let's take a look at where we are and where we've been. the newest jobs report shows the unemployment rate at 7.9%. in february, 2009, the president's first full month in office it was 8.3%. in between it's been a rollercoaster ride ever since. in october, 2009 the unemployment rate reached its high point of 10%. last month its lowest point 7.8%. 17 times the unemployment rate went up. 18 times it went down. 9 times it stayed the same. in terms of actual jobs the president has presided over 28 months of job gains and 17 months of job losses. but there hasn't been a month that saw a net job loss in more than two years. the best month in terms of job gains was may of 2010 when 516,000 jobs were added. the worst month in terms of job losses was march of 2009 when nearly 800,000 jobs were lost. so
.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> reporter: some say the report could have been a tipping point in the election. matt dowd says it is too late to sway voters. >> the last six months in the economy are baked in the perceptions. >> reporter: mitt romney has scheduled a last minute stop sunday his advisers say the president is losing support in pennsylvania. president obama's camp says it is a desperate move. katie marzullo, abc7 news. >>> still ahead, chp rolls into action in oakland. a live report on how they will be helping the police force tonight. >>> police search for a couple stealing mail in broad daylight. >>> the california highway patrol is calling it its first night of lending a hand in oakland a big success. overnight chp joined oakland police in patrolling the city that has seen a spike in crime. >> reporter: oakland police happy to have chp officers on the streets with them to deal with the criminal element. opd has long said if you want to impact the crime rate in this city you have to get

a listen to this. >> under president obama gm cut 15,000 american jobs, but they're planning to double the number of cars built in china, which means 15,000 more jobs for china. now comes word that chrysler plants will start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. >> dana, i'm completely confused here. romney is now saying the bailout cost gm jobs, but he's also said obama did exactly what romney had prescribed. help me. >> well, let me see if i can here. what happened is romney put together this -- first of all, he started at a campaign rally misquoting what chrysler was, in fact, doing. they're not moving jobs to china. they're increasing some work in china to get around the tariffs over there. they've added 7,000 jobs in north america. the fact checkers went after him for that, so he put out an ad essentially saying the same thing on television. the fact checkers went after him for that and he put out a new ad on the radio making a worse and more false allegation. some time ago the pollsters said we're not going to let the fact checkers dictate our campaign and nobody can argue with
would be more so by president obama even with his jobs bill out there in congress that we do not hear about too much. i think that could have put this nation further ahead even looking at corporations holding funds where employees could be working right now. i do not know if it is for the ownership of these corporations to determine -- host: thank you for your comment this morning. gov. christie also spoke yesterday from new jersey. >> the challenge now is to get back to normalcy. we need to be sure to get power restored as quickly as possible. hospitals are taken care of and we get kids back to school. i discussed this issue today with the president and am pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help us get those things while we were in the car riding together. i want to thank him for that. this is our sixth conversation since the weekend. it has been a great working relationship to make sure we are doing the jobs that the people elected us to do. i cannot think the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for the people in our state. i was abl
